Aboyne is a typical Deeside village.
The town sits on the eastern edge of the Cairngorms National Park and spreads out from a large open village green - venue of the annual Highland Games - which creates a real sense of space in the town centre. There is a good selection of shops and restaurants as well as places to stay and the town is the focus of the annual Aboyne and Deeside Festival held every year in July.
Close by, the 25,000 acre Glen Tanar Estate lies within the National Park amidst spectacular Highland scenery with facilities that include waymarked footpaths, cycle routes, horse riding, salmon and trout fishing, landrover safaris and a Countryside Ranger Service.
